Have to brag on my baby for being accepted into Washington Elementary STEM Club (Science Technology Engineering Mathematics). There were (I hear), over 200 applicants!  I am so proud of you, Darius Cole!  You always amaze me!  #4thgrade #stem #stemclub #washington #wildcats #goafterwhatyouwant #chaseit #mybaby #proudmomma ❤
Templates drawn for our CA salt dough maps! Tomorrow I’m doing a teacher demo and Friday morning we place our dough, so it can dry over the weekend.

Here’s a glimpse of how I started making dioramas as a kid. Mountain man project (with Griz and Swapper) in the fourth grade at Colorow Elementary School with my good friend Curt Breeling! Other than the Mountain man doll and diorama we made please take note of the extremely bad ass cowlick I am sporting on the top of my head and the ever popular velour shirt 😜 Thank you for the pictures @curtbreeling ! You totally made my day!

It’s crazy to think about the grades they are in this year! These two are always top of their class, and love the pursuit of being the best. They put in the work and the results show.  Also, kudos to momma bear for your dedication to making sure our kids settle for nothing but their best.  @rrrrachel_rrr

Having a good friend at work makes going SO much better! @teach4summer teaches 3rd & I teach 4th. We both are @taylorswift  biggest fans (went to her stadium tour in STL last night), we have very similar teaching styles, we share ideas, and we get each other through the day! I am so thankful for her, and if I am going to talk my breaks away, so glad it’s with you! 😘👯‍♀️ #workbesties #rkp4life #3rdgrade #4thgrade

In 2014, I spoke these words from the legendary #ArthurAshe as I concluded a speech to my department as the @UCLA #departmentofanthropology student commencement speaker.
•
If you cannot tell, I am definitely a go-getter when it comes to working towards my goals and helping other’s achieve theirs. I am the first to sign up for anything that will positively grow me, help my students, or make a difference in our world.
•
Unfortunately, sometimes my life is used to negatively justify other’s choices for the way they live their life. “Well you are young, so of course you have energy to do that” “You are not a mother so you have the time to do what you want” “You have your family to help you”.
I am made to feel like it is negative that I am in the early years of my career or am brought down because I do not have children of my own or because I come from a supportive and encouraging family, I should feel guilty.
•
The truth is, I ❤️ everything I do. I choose to take on a heavy load, not intentionally or to overwhelm myself, but because I am happy doing the things I love to do. Right now, I am teaching my amazing 4th grade scholars full time, working on a 2nd Masters degree, earning my #gatecertification, coaching and teaching swim lessons, doing various additional volunteer work, and trying to be a present daughter, sister, friend, and human. •
Rather than bring someone else down, let’s learn from one another and build each other up. When life is not going the way you planned, just remember these words: “Start where you are. Use what you have. Do what you can.” ♥️

1st and 4th graders collaboration on a engineering challenge! Their task was to build the tallest tower they could with toothpicks and marshmallows! Simple. Easy. Engaging! And fun! The students loved getting to with with a big/small buddy! #miniengineers #1stgrade #littlebuddies #4thgrade #bigbuddies

#Probots are amazing for #math, #coding, #engagement and so much more. Today they chose to make a chart so they could keep track of the ProBots distance in inches for future drawings on cardboard.
So many Kids made the connection with differs angles today!

Sooooooo, I spent an embarrassing amount of time trying to figure out how to get the fancy new copier to start up with my ID badge. A coworker finally took pity on me swiping here, there, and everywhere with no luck, and pointed out what to do 😳🤦🏻‍♀️😂 And that, kids, is why taking time and reading the directions is so important... #teacherfail #isitfridayyet #dontiteachabouttfollowingdirections #teacherlife #iteach4th #iteachtoo #4thgrade #4thgradeteacher #instateacher #teachersfollowteachers #teachertribe #teachersofinstagram

MIC DROP 🎤 
I’m not going to lie, I was pretty skeptical about the value added by a karaoke mic—don’t get me wrong, I thought they were awesome, but I didn’t know if I NEEDED one for my room...
.
I ended up buying one recently because it was on sale in store and I was feeling impulsive 🙃. I can honestly say after using it for the past couple weeks, it is such a wonderful engagement tool that it might be the best $20 I’ve spent for my classroom this year! 
Engagement is key and I have noticed that during the lull parts of our day, like right after lunch, this gets them excited to volunteer ideas or simply listen. 
All in all, I would say it was a good buy! If you’re on the fence about one like I was, I would look into see if you can find one for cheap like I did (Nordstrom Rack!). Now all I need is a stage! 
PS—It was Wacky Wednesday today if you couldn’t tell by my tutu, Princess Leia buns, and flying pig knee high socks 🤪

I am blessed with some pretty amazing friends and family who donated money to my classroom, so that my kiddos could receive a new book each month. When I told them this news today, my students were ecstatic! They were extremely grateful, as was I!

This area is for my small group corner. This cart is perfect for what I need. I just roll it up to the table and get going! The top shelf is flipped upside down to be used a flat surface for my easel. The other two shelves are used for each reading block I have. Inside the rainbow drawers are reading chips, and the filing cabinet is filled with materials to extend our learning. The tins hold any supplies we may need so that we can maximize our time together. Tap the photo to see where everything came from.

Working with a bunch of kids of varying ages may feel like a zoo, but it’s animals that do a good job leading the way! 😂

Every year we tweak what works best with kids using the Animals in Time stories, and this year has me triply excited! If you scroll to the next picture,  you will see my son offering a quick tutorial on how to draw ants after reading about Amber the Ant. Here’s a little bit about Amber:
Amber the Ant may have been small, but she was sure mighty. When her colony faced fear and uncertainty on a mountain on the Sinai Peninsula, she stepped in right on time, providing the others hope and direction.

Another great box to review for @reallygoodstuff So much focus is put on reading and math that sometimes in the elementary grades we can forget about how important and fun science is! This month @reallygoodstuff has a great box filled with super fun science stuff and experiments! My kiddos will love this, and there’s a little something for the teachers!

Today as I was about to leave my classroom for the day I stepped back and took a good look at my classroom. There are many days we leave our classrooms thinking that we didn't get enough done, wondering how we can better explain things to students the next day, hoping to continue making connections in between assessments and rigorous tasks. Sometimes I just need to step back and reflect- I have 9 year olds making videos to explain concepts, collaborating with each other, making real life connections and becoming better human beings every day. My classroom I have today looks significantly different than the classroom I fell in love with school in (when I was in 3rd grade). In my classroom today, the curriculum, expectations, and pressure put on 4th graders and their teachers is significantly different than when I was in 4th grade. What has stayed the same, is that in my classroom, there is a group of people who are each others cheerleaders when they are down and their anchor when they need to be more grounded, and a teacher who is trying her best to be a champion for every one of her students. My goal is to embrace the days when we don't get every topic covered because a "teachable moment" came up, or simply because I had to take a little extra time to truly listen to a student's raw emotions about a situation at home. Something was said to me my first year teaching that I have never let out of sight, but am finally listening to..."they don't care how much you know until they know how much you care". #teachon #4thgrade #teachersofinstagram

Needing some of that restoration mid week! I don’t know about you, but even mini vacations (while being a HUGE blessing) & birthday parties are tiring! We had a blast at the beach this weekend & then we headed home...right back into cleaning, more renovating, and homeschooling! In our classroom this morning, everyone’s tired was showing, lol. We rallied & finished the day off on a great note (💯 on two quizzes for our 4th grader!! 🙌🏼). I’m calling on Jesus name for some energy this evening, while simultaneously chasing rest. I know everyone feels me! 👉🏼BALANCE. JESUS. REST.👌🏼🙌🏼🖤🔑 .

Presenting was a BIG deal today because my two most excited students used to be very nervous to present. They rocked it! Speaking of which- check out the final verse of this group’s song for tomorrow’s Rock Your School. All original lyrics and I must say I’m their biggest fan!

Finally started breaking in our gorgeous Writer’s Notebooks (see a few posts back) today!  Each child created a “Web of Me” and shared their webs with a partner. My intention was to then do a quick write, but time was not on our side. Oh well, that’s what tomorrow is for! 🤷🏻‍♀️🕓📝 #writersgonnawrite #readerswrite #writinginstruction #writinginspiration #writersnotebooks

Fall bulletin board is up! I saw this idea on Pinterest and used a google image to print out the coffee cups. I wanted to make it more interactive for the kids, so I had them write what they think it means to be nice and give an example! It turned out super cute, and it’s the perfect bulletin board for September and October! 🎃🍂☕️ #iteach4th #iteachfourth #fourthgrade #4thgrade #grade4 #firstyearteacher #fall #kindness #bulletinboard #classroomdecor #coffee #pumpkinspice

It turned out super cute, and it’s the perfect bulletin board for September and October! 🎃🍂☕️ #iteach4th  #iteachfourth  #fourthgrade  #4thgrade  #grade4  #firstyearteacher  #fall  #kindness  #bulletinboard  #classroomdecor  #coffee  #pumpkinspice

Well, today was just one of those days. Our 4th grade family is still adjusting to our routines and procedures and I had to be particularly repetitive today. Then I got this note. These kids...♥️.

Though I’m totally ready for 🍁. (Sorry @theadamdane ) we are soaking up this gorgeously warm day.  3rd week of school and we are off again for the Jewish holiday. (Insert teachers never work joke here)

I was still at work and have never appreciated my short commute more than on these days where I was off but daycare was still open.  Allowed me a couple of hours to catch-up and then the rest of the day with my little love. 
I remember the days when I was “so busy” and never had time.  Now I’ve added more to my plate and there’s less and less time every year.  The truth is that we all have the same amount of time, we just use it differently and it’s totally up to us weather we use it effectively or not.

Anyone else think we should have every Wednesday off?

Our hallway wall is dedicated to Ghost Boys, and to the thought that one day, the color of our skin will not define us. We included expository writing pieces in which the students explained the relevance of this book. #readaloud #ghostboys #4thgrade #teachervibes #teacherlife #iteachreading #4thgrade #4thgradeteacher
